Windows Enterprise Administrators use a variety of tools to control user preferences: Group Policy Objects, Logon Scripts, Registry Keys, and Folder Redirection. These methods are used to force certain settings or limit the amount of the profile that's need to be read and stored during logon and logoff respectively.
Problems will occur with managability, profile corruption, logon time duration, last-write-wins over multiple sessions, and incompatibility of settings across multiple platforms.
There are a couple of applications that can help you do this more efficiently. RES Workspace Manager 2012 is such an application. You can download it here. The Express Edition is free and can be converted to Bronse, Silver, or Gold Editions, which are more fully featured, at a later time.
The application uses a central Data Store, a Management Console and client agents. The installation is pretty straightforward. The only pitfalls are mainly related to database access.
Execute "RES_WM_2012_Express.msi". Click Next.
